Mini Backpack

We are so excited to reveal our brand new Mini Backpack which will be available by special order only!

Our Mini Backpack measures 12″ H  x 10″ W and is the perfect size for any toddler, preschooler or young child.  It is fully lined and features adjustable straps allowing this backpack to grow with the child, a large zippered pocket perfect for holding toys or a favorite blanket/stuffed animal and a small zippered pocket for small items like cars or crayons.  This backpack would also be great for holding a change of clothes, snacks or even a few diapers while you’re out on the town, at preschool/daycare or enjoying some time at the park.


Our Mini Backpacks will be available for $25 by special order only and can be customized to feature the fabric design or color of your choice. Please feel free to email us at with any questions or to place your order.  These backpacks would make great Easter or birthday gifts for all the little cuties in your life.

Plans for 2017

Hope all of you enjoyed the first weekend of December!  We had a blast participating in the Tanaka Farms Holiday Boutique on Saturday but now we’re ready to unwind, enjoy the holidays with our family and start making plans for 2017.

One of the things on the 2017 Pretty in Gingham agenda is to debut our brand new dish towel design which we have been revamping the past few months.  We’ll be using a larger, softer, more absorbent towel which will hold up great in any kitchen.  Here’s a little sneak peak:


We’ve tested these towels and they’ve maintained their softness and absorbency even after heavy use and many washes.

Our brand new dish towels will be available for special order in 2017 and will be available at our 2017 craft shows.

We want to take the time to thank each and every one of you for your support this year. We wish you and your families and healthy, happy and wonderful new year and look forward to seeing you in 2017!

Stocking stuffers

It’s really starting to feel like Christmas here in Southern California and we can’t wait for the Tanaka Farms Holiday Boutique this Saturday!tanakafarmsWe are really excited to be debuting a few new Pretty in Gingham items at the Tanaka Farms boutique that would make great little stocking stuffers for the special people in your life.

Our drawstring bags are perfect for storing little goodies like makeup, candy or keys in your purse and also come in handy in gym bags, diaper bags or backpacks.  They are the perfect way to keep all your items in one place!


Our zipper pouches come in a variety of shapes and sizes and make great makeup bags, pencil bags or cell phone holders.  They can also double as a coupon holder or coin purse and can even be used to keep baby items like pacifiers or teething toys clean and organized in a larger bag.


Lastly, our key fobs make it easy to find your keys in whatever type of bag you carry. Whether it’s a small cross body, a large tote, a backpack or diaper bag, you will never have to find yourself searching the deepest, darkest crevices of your bag for your keys.  The strap of our adorable key fob can also be slipped over your wrist for hands free carrying while working out at the gym, going for a run, walking the dog, or running errands.



As always, all of our Pretty in Gingham items can be custom ordered based on the design or color of your choice.

We hope to see you this weekend at the Tanaka Farms Holiday Boutique!

Kiku Craft Fair

Happy Wednesday friends!

The cooler weather in SoCal this week has got us into the fall spirit.  With the Holidays just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get a head start on your holiday shopping for family and friends.  We have always despised the crowds in the malls during the holidays and prefer to do as much of our shopping ahead of time as possible so we don’t feel so stressed.

The upcoming Kiku Crafts & Food Fair is one of our absolute favorite craft fairs to attend both as a vendor and a shopper.  It is extremely organized and easy to find exactly what you’re looking for.   Added bonus: there is always delicious food to snack on.  If you’re anything like us, shopping has a way of making you hungry!  We love to support small businesses and love being able to gift things that you can’t snag anywhere else.

Here’s a sneak peak of some of the items we’ll be featuring that day:
